Patrick Vieira Blast Wenger - You never showed me the way to management

Patrick Vieira has criticised Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger, claiming that his compatriot offers little assistance to his former players, as they pursue management careers.

The ex Gunners captain, is now coaching New York City FC in the Major League Soccer (MLS), but insists Wenger can take little credit for how far he has gone in management.

“I’m not saying Arsene didn’t give me the desire to manage. He might have done so without me realising but he never guided me, never showed me the way,” Vieira told France Football .“Maybe Arsene wanted his former players to do it on their own.

I find that a bit of a shame because all those who left Arsenal and who are managers always got on well with him.”Vieira also questioned the lack of former Arsenal players on the club’s current coaching staff.“It’s a bit sad to not see old players in Arsenal’s staff,” he added.“I’m not [just] talking about the first team.

There’s only Freddie Ljungberg.“They love the club. After that, it’s not because we played at Arsenal that we deserve to be manager. All is earned but the desire is there.”
